Production shows have been a really popular form of entertainment in the last couple of decades, especially now when we have all the technology to support them. A group of extraordinary performance artists who have been a big part of the Vegas tourism is called Cirque Du Soleil.
You might have heard of them. If you haven’t, chances are you have been living on a remote island without the Internet for the last three decades. Cirque Du Soleil made some of the most popular production shows in Vegas such as O, Michael Jackson ONE, KA, and more. One of their latest shows is called The Beatles LOVE, and it is something that you should definitely pay attention to, especially if you consider yourself a fan of the legendary quartet!
The first thing you should know is that the producer of this show is Sir George Martin and his son Giles Martin. Now, the Martin we are talking about is not the famous epic fantasy writer, but the former Beatles musical director and producer.
In fact, if you are in the boomer generation, you probably made that distinction right away. Hopefully, Millenials are not confused at this point.
So, why is this so important? You see, Sir George Martin was so important to the Beatles that he was often called “the fifth Beatle.” His influence on John, Paul, George, and Ringo was so big that he even influenced the way they thought and created music.
In other words, if there’s one person that knew the very essence of the Beatles — it was Sir George Martin. Even the Queen herself recognized his talent, welcoming him into knighthood.
Therefore, the entire show perfectly captures the magic that the Beatles offered to the world. The audiences who visit it will go on a magical mystery tour along with all the performers on stage who will leave you mesmerized.
The music is also great, as the showrunners used the original tapes from the Abbey Road Studios and remixed them in order to provide a unique experience of the band. Some of the songs that you can hear during the show are Yesterday, All You Need is Love, Strawberry Fields Forever, and more. The score is combined with the stunning visual production to provide an ultimate experience that only Cirque Du Soleil is capable of producing.
Therefore, the next time you are in Vegas, make sure to go straight to The Mirage and visit a special venue where this show takes place. The Beatles LOVE is available every Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7 pm and 9:30 pm. The show has been a part of Vegas for more than two years now, as the premiere took place back on July 24, 2017.
